About Me

I began my legal career at a small firm in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2002, handling family law and general civil and criminal cases for one year before relocating to Raleigh, North Carolina in 2003 to concentrate exclusively on family law with a Raleigh firm. I started the McGuire Law Firm in 2005 and now practice primarily in Richmond County, Moore County and Cumberland County. I also handle cases in the counties of Wake, Durham, Orange, Chatham, Harnett and Robeson.

Perhaps the easiest way to sum up my career is to say that I didn’t choose family law. It would be more accurate to say that family law chose me. I experienced divorce in 2003, and along with it a bitter, protracted custody battle. When I say that I know what my clients are going through, I mean it. There is nothing that compares to the animosity in a high-conflict divorce proceeding, and choosing the right attorney to navigate through it is one of the most important decisions one can make. Almost everything that you value is on the table when faced with divorce, including your livelihood, your assets and most importantly, your kids.

If you are reading this, chances are something bad has happened in your marriage, or you suspect that it will soon. McGuire Law Firm offers you a low cost divorce attorney and place you can turn to for advice you can trust, either before or after separation. I have a great deal of experience in several North Carolina jurisdictions with the mechanical aspects of family law – what to file, where to file it, how to set a trial date, how to best position you for litigation and how to best present the facts in your case to your judge at trial. However, the question of how to resolve YOUR specific issues in YOUR specific case may or may not involve the mechanics of the court process. You may best be served by spending some time with me exploring your options and clarifying your goals. When you discuss those issues with me, you’re talking to someone who has been through it. Will my personal experience make a difference in your case? Maybe not, but the advice you get from me will be from a guy who has paid an attorney and has been on the other side of that desk. My role as a counselor at law is just as important to me as my role as an attorney at law, and that’s why I formed the McGuire Law Firm. To that end, when you call my firm, you talk to ME, and you will not get caught up in a maze of people who answer the phone, screen the call and make excuses why your attorney can’t talk to you. I can’t promise that I’ll always have positive news or that you’ll like everything I have to say, but I can promise that I will be responsive to your calls and emails, I’ll tell it to you straight and I’ll give you my honest opinion if you ask a question. If you need advice about issues of Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support, Alimony, Equitable Distribution or any other aspect of family law, please feel free to call.
